photo walk: architecture

photo walk: architecture | Rostock | momentstolivefor.com

We’re back from a beautiful and relaxing vacation at the Baltic Sea. We stayed three days simply at the coast, then two nights in Rostock and four in Stralsund. Two of the most amazing architectural cities, I’ve ever seen. When I walked the streets of Rostock for the first time, I instantly fell in love with the hanseatic architecture. Since the fall of the wall 25 years ago, so much has changed in these cities. A lot of money was paid, so the buildings could be renovated. Almost every house is painted now in bright colors and looks like having build just two years ago, although most of them are over 60 years old. I was especially amazed by the little details and ornaments. Just look at the faces and little flowers or the sun with clouds door handle.

photo walk: sunlight

photo walk: sunlight | momentstolivefor.com

The golden hour – the time for photographers to be on their way taking the best photos in this beautiful, magical light. One hour after sunrise or one before sunset. It’s real magic. When I noticed, that it was one of those evenings, I packed my boyfriend and my camera immediately and took them for a relaxed walk. And what a beautiful light it was. Perfect for a photo walk. Just magic.

photo walk: leaves

photo walk: leaves | momentstolivefor.com

Somehow it was a typical April weekend, only in May. One minute it rained, the other the sun came out. Always changing. We had luck and got a whole hour of sunshine to walk the streets of Berlin. First I couldn’t decide, which theme to choose, but as soon as I saw the light green shine from everywhere around, it was clear. This photo walk had to be about leaves. Green, juicy, shiny leaves. Aren’t they beautiful and full of life?

photo walk: windows | Berlin | momentstolivefor.com

It’s been a long time, since I did my last photo walk. Mostly because the weather wasn’t that photogenic and because I had other things on my mind. But today was perfect. We found the time to walk around the block in the golden hour. The light was magical and the shadows of the trees, made the photos particular interesting. At Prenzlauer Berg, a district of Berlin, most of the houses are very old and have therefore beautiful ornaments at the front. And everyone of them is a little bit different, some older, some younger. Love these differences side by side. It’s always worth to take a walk around the neighborhood.

round & round #6 in Prague

round & round #6 in Prague - The Prague astronomical clock | momentstolivefor

Such a beautiful city. So much gold everywhere. It’s surely the golden city: Prague, capital of the Czech Republic. We went there on our vacation, after visiting Vienna (Austria) and Munich (Germany). When we walked around the city and finally hit the Old Town Square, we were fascinated by the beautiful architecture and the golden and detailed ornaments everywhere around. No question, this was the perfect place for a round & round photoshoot.

“The Prague astronomical clock is a medieval astronomical clock located in Prague and was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still working.” (via Wikimedia). It’s an amazing clock with many little details to discover, like the figure of the Death on the side of the clock. We stood there over half an hour just looking for those beautiful little things, before we walked away, curious what this wonderful city would show us next.

photo walk: vegetables

I took this photo walk parallel to the photo walk: fruits at the Viktualienmarkt in Munich. There were not so many exotic vegetables as fruits, but it was nevertheless fun to capture all sorts of beautiful arranged veggies.

Like last time, you can play a little game and guess the names of all vegetables. You find the solution at the end of the post. Have a ball.

round & round #5 in Vienna

round & round #5 in Vienna, Austria at the Stephansplatz | momentstolivefor

The Stephansplatz – the place to be in Vienna, Austria. You can visit the cathedral and go upstairs to have an amazing view via Vienna. Or you can ride on horse-drawn carriages around town or eat the famous Sacher torte in one of the coffeehouses. On our vacation we went within three days almost five times there, not always on purpose, but somehow we ended up there eating lunch or crossing it on our way to the tram.

While I waited at the Stephansplatz for my boyfriend on our last day in Vienna, who had a short business meeting, I decided to do the round & round photoshoot there. I found it extremely interessting, how the different styles of architecture stand side by side. Historical buildings like the dome or the old coffeehouse next to modern buildings with a steel front from the 90th or even younger. Nevertheless do I love old magnificent buildings more, with all their little details and figures and it was fun to search for these beauties.

photo walk: fruits

rambutans - photo walk: fruits | momentstolivefor

When we visited the Viktualienmarkt in Munich we were amazed by the numerous fruits and vegetables. There were not only regional but exotic fruits like lychees and rambutans (photo above). Yes, I’ve never heared of them before, too. I had to google them on the internet, because I had forgotten to ask at the market booth. They look so funny with their long yellow-green hair.

Are you in the mood for a little game? Try to name every fruit shown on the photos. Most fruits are easy to recognize, but maybe one or two are new to you. You can find the answers at the end of the post. Have fun!

round & round #3

round & round #3 by momentstolivefor

When I left the office last Monday, I was stressed out by this busy work day. I stepped out the door into the warm sunlight and new instantly, that I wanted to make a relaxing bike tour; and that it was time to try a new road. Fortunately I had the good sense to pack my camera in the morning, so I stopped on the way and made a new ’round & round’ photoshooting.

When I look at the photos now, I feel the warm sun on my skin, fresh air filling my lungs and my busy heartbeat calms down.

what a weekend

What a weekend! There was so much going on, that it could have filled an entire week. We helped at a childrens birthday party with 20 children. They camped in the garden and we had fun sleeping in a hammock next to them in the garden. It was fun, but was I thankful for my first cup of coffee, that my friend brought me in the morning. You can see, how groggy I looked when I woke up.

Later on Saturday we visited a medieval fair, similar to the one I took a photo walk at last fall, but smaller. I really like, how everyone is dressed up and how professional and real everything looks. The people are taking it really serious and pay attention to every little detail, it’s amazing.

Furthermore we made a bike trip through the Hamme lowland on Sunday. We tried to soak up every bit of sunshine, we could get. And enjoyed a big cup of vanilla icecream and yummy strawberries. Oh, how I love them. Can’t get enough of them. Afterwards we lay down on the grass and let the sun fill our energy reserves. It was so lovely.

But if you think, that’s it, you are wrong. Above all we took a canoe tour on the Hamme river on Friday. But I will post the photos tomorrow, simply because they are so beautiful.

hope you all had an amazing and sunny weekend as well
